    End of Democracy
    This is a little scary!

    At about the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in the year 1787, Alexander Tyler (a Scottish history professor at The University of Edinburgh) had this to say about "The Fall of The Athenian Republic" some 2,000 years prior. "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

    "The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From Bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; >From dependence back into bondage."

    Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the most recent Presidential election:

    Population of counties won by:
    Gore=127 million
    Bush=143 million

    Square miles of land won by:
    Gore=580,000
    Bush=22,427,000

    States won by:
    Gore=19;
    Bush=29

    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by :
    Gore=13.2
    Bush=2.1

    Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens of this great country. Gore's territory encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off government welfare..."

    Olson believes the U.S. is now somewhere between the "apathy" and "complacency" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy; with some 40 percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase. Pass this along.

    Please note: NEVER GIVE THE DEVIL A RIDE, HE WILL ALWAYS WANT TO DRIVE

    Interesting, a Kerry presidency would no doubt accelerate the process.

    "If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator" (G. W. Bush)
     
  6. I'm inclined to agree that the Republicans are probably the lesser of two evils here. However, I won't be voting for the lesser of two evils...I'll be voting Libertarian.

    OH oh....look out.... the liberals will start crying racism and
    other nonsense :D

    The Democrat platform: "Listen up you poor criminal bastards.
    We promise to stick it to the man, and transfer as much wealth
    from the working class to your lazy asses as possible, EXCEPT
    for me of course. Im going to be a rich fat cat thanks to YOU" :p

  10. So people in high crime areas, those most likely to to be victims, tend to vote Democratic.
